django-cities-light -- Simple django-cities alternative

This add-on provides models and commands to import country/city data into your database. The data is pulled from GeoNames and contains:

  • country names
  • city names

Spatial query support is not required by this application.

This application is very simple and is useful if you want to make a simple address book for example. If you intend to build a fully featured spatial database, you should use django-cities.

Upgrade

Se CHANGELOG.

Installation

Install django-cities-light:

pip install django-cities-light

Or the development version:

pip install -e git+git@github.com:yourlabs/django-cities-light.git#egg=cities_light

Note that this project supports django-south.

Data update
